Following Solicitors in Lancaster’s blog on Food allergies and the dangers of incorrectly labelled food (which you can read here), ITV News has recently published an article which Solicitors in Lancaster found very interesting - Researchers have conducted a landmark study into Peanut allergies, and the ability to build up a tolerance to them in children. 
The research was carried out by Researchers from Evelina London Children’s Hospital and King’s College London in which the suggestion was that immunotherapy, which is the process of gradually building up immunity against an allergy, such as a pollen therapy or a bee sting allergy, was a good method to help fight allergies. 
 
Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal, would explain that the therapy works by gradually introducing the children to peanuts, slowly desensitizing them to the allergy. The study was carried out on 500 children, aged 4 to 17, from across the United States and Europe. There were two focus groups, those who were exposed to Peanuts, and those who were exposed to a placebo drug. 
 
The final results, Solicitors in Lancaster explain, showed that 67% of the peanut taking focus group could tolerate at least 600mg of peanut protein, whereas only 4% of the placebo taking group could tolerate this amount. 
 
This study could be a ground breaking discover for the science community, and could mean that, at some point in the future, Peanut allergies will be a thing of the past. Whilst none of our current team at MG Legal, Solicitors in Lancaster, suffer from a Peanut allergy, we are pleased that this could help so many families and children, both locally to Solicitors in Lancaster, and across the World.
